I am a staff scientist at the Institute of Heritage Sciences (Incipit), Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), where I lead a co-research line in software engineering and cultural heritage. The ultimate goal of my work is to develop the necessary theories, methodologies and technologies to help ascribe meaning to the information that is managed in the cultural heritage realm. Previously I have worked at a number of public and private organisations in Spain and Australia, both in industry and academia, and in the fields of conceptual modelling, metamodelling and situational method engineering. I am an elected member of the steering committee of the Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) Association, and I have authored or co-authored over 100 publications.
